Last December, several parts of Kuala Lumpur and Selangor, as well as the east coast, were hit by incessant rain and thunderstorms. In the early morning of December 18, Tzu Chi volunteers urgently set up and mobilized a flood relief team, delivering hot meals to those affected. Starting from December 24, Tzu Chi gathered public members, mobilizing 6,605 volunteer-shifts in three consecutive days to do a large-scale clean up at the worst hit areas in Taman Sri Muda, Shah Alam, and Taman Sri Nanding, Hulu Langat. Following that, Tzu Chi volunteers ran 2,500 work shifts to flood-stricken areas in Kuala Lumpur, Selangor and Pahang, to compile list of flood victims and extend care to each affected family.
The light emitted by a single firefly is faint, but the light of a group of fireflies is enough to light up the darkest sky. The strength of one person is limited but moving the hands of a hundred or a thousand people is enough to remove the thick mud, giving back the earth a cleaner appearance, and restoring the flood-ravaged houses.
Upon receiving the news that Klang was severely hit by floods, Tzu Chi Klang sent a relief team to the scene, distributing hot meals and calming the devastated victims.
A downpour that lasted for over two hours on the morning of June 13, 2019 had caused the water level of the Kampung Kibambangan River to rise rapidly and consequently triggered a flash flood. Tzu Chi volunteers were despatched to assess the damage and deliver aid and care to those affected.
